An iconic image of the Cariboo Gold Rush crafted in fine gold (99.99% pure)!

In 1861, prospectors arrived in colonial British Columbia. The gold rush was intense and shortlived; and delivered unimaginable wealth for the time. Using panning to locate gold dates back thousands of years. The pan has remained the symbol of the gold rush dream: one prospector, alone in the wilderness, armed only with a pan and dreams of "striking it rich". This coin will make a beautiful gift for someone you cherish.

Design:
Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin depicts the elemental image that inspired gold fever throughout the 1860s: a tin pan just lifted from the river’s waters filled with nuggets and the dust of gold.
